An Expanse of Space

The Beginning: Soaring cathedral ceilings in a room flooded with light from arched windows and a view to the woods beyond.

The Concept: Refresh the dark, dated, brick fireplace; add much-needed architectural details for visual impact; create a cozy, welcoming style within this expanse of space.

Hi - the client purchased the floor lamp and the photo above the fireplace is a custom photograph from a local DC photographer who is no longer selling his work. Best, Meredith

This project was completed about 6 years ago. From what I remember the carpenter faced the existing brick fireplace (that was 2-story)with furring strips and sheetrock.

That lamp is from The Natural Light. I purchased directly from the company but I know they do sell some lamps via online sources.

It's about 10". There are specific building codes to follow when determining the distance of non-flammable material you need around a firebox before you add a flammable product such as a wood surround. I discussed this with the GC on the project to determine the correct distance.

Not sure how to answer this question. I did the design and the cabinet maker/carpenter the client hired did the fabrication/installation.

This is a Kravet fabric. We designed this space about 4 years ago...not sure if the fabric is still available. I would need to look-up the info in the project file for additional info.

Hi. The photo above the mantel was taken by a local DC photographer...he is not selling his work anymore. We were lucky to get it!m We had it tinted in a sepia tone to work with the warm tones in the room.
